Have a SWEET day!


♥ Our next few days will be filled with

hearts♥
hugs♥
all things pink♥
all things red♥
LOVE♥
sweetness♥

I LOVE Valentine's Day!!♥
Even before our kids
were in school I always
got them Valentine's and
we would bake cookies
with frosting and of course
lots and lots of sprinkles!♥
We always have a special
Valentine's Supper too!♥

I am getting things ready
to take to school for the
VALENTINE'S DAY PARTY
We have a few games planned.
I made cookies and frosting
so that the kids can decorate
their very own cookie. I know
that some children out there
don't get to do that kind of
thing with their Mom...and
I know it is something that
they really enjoy!♥ I am
serving tacos too so that
they don't get filled full of
sugar!!♥

I hope your Valentine's Day is
filled with
♥ SWEETNESS♥

To make sure that your day
is filled with sweetness I
thought I would share this
recipe with you!!!

I love Valentine's Day. I also have always given my children a special supper and treats. Now I get to do that with my grandchildren.This year I made them fabric bags filled with treats. They think I am a dork sometimes. Oh well I wear that badge proudly. Even though my granddaughter is a teenager I know she would love to make these cookies and decorate them with me. I can't wait to do this with her. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.

These look delicious! How sweet of YOU to let the little kids decorate the cookies themselves. That is so thoughtful of you. :o)

You are such a great cook (judging by all of those delicious recipes and the yummy-looking pictures of the results...if I lived near you I'd weigh 500 lbs., because I'd want to try everything you make! LOL

Have a great weekend and a fun Valentine's Day!

One year I made a special dinner...complete w/ china and wine glasses (filled w/ sweet tea of course)and candles. I made mini-meatloaves shaped like hearts...mashedpotatoes w/ a hint of pink...etc. Do you want to know what my children told everyone we had for dinner? BEEF HEARTS!!! Yep, beef hearts....we still laugh at that one. I can't look at meatloaf the same way.....

Happy Valentine's Day!!! I'm off to try your recipe!
